Description

First Edition, Illustrated

A first edition copy of this work in the publisher's original cloth binding.

Felix Nikolaus Alexander Georg Graf von Luckner (1881-1966), sometimes called Count Luckner in English, was a German nobleman, naval officer, author, and sailor. He earned the epithet Der Seeteufel (the Sea Devil), and his crew also earned the name Die Piraten des Kaisers (the Emperor's Pirates), during their time sailing commerce raider SMS Seeadler (Sea Eagle) in the First World War. Luckner became a war hero in Germany and was renowned around the world for his seamanship and chivalrous conduct during the war, which resulted in a minimal loss of life on both sides.

This is a biography of his life, with particular emphasis on his exploits during the First World War, by Lowell Thomas (1892-1981), the American writer, broadcaster and traveller.
